OneWorld Community Health Centers’ main campus in South Omaha is the cornerstone of the University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Community Health Center Track.

Our patient population includes individuals and families from around the world. The majority of the patients who visit our South Omaha campus speak Spanish, and we also serve a growing refugee population from Burma and Bhutan.

Why practice here?

We are a certified Patient Centered Medical Home and we believe in whole person health care. We provide team-based health care in which clinical providers are supported by:

  • Behavioral health therapists
  • Clinical pharmacists
  • Community health workers
  • Diabetes educators
  • Dietitians
  • Patient navigators
  • Social workers

How do you use support staff/programs to provide better care for patients?

The support staff teams at OneWorld are phenomenal. They are able to focus on each patient’s needs on a more personal basis.OneWorld Resident

We follow a collaborative care model with psychiatry to offer joint care for patients with severe mental illness through the Advancing Integrated Mental Services (AIMS) program. Residents have the opportunity to work and learn directly from the psychiatrist and psychiatry residents through this integrative program.

We also offer patients X-rays and labs on-site, and our OneWorld Marketplace enrollment team is available to help patients access the health care coverage they need.

OneWorld will provide you with opportunities to gain additional exposure to the following and more:

  • Acute care
  • Advancing Integrated Mental Services program
  • Hepatitis C treatment
  • High-quality COVID19 outpatient management
  • High volume prenatal care
  • Immigrant and refugee health care
  • LGBTQIA2S+ health care
  • Medication-Assisted Treatment for patients struggling with substance use disorders

  • School-Based Health Centers
  • Teen and young adult health care

What is your favorite thing about practicing at OneWorld?

The diverse pathology we get to see in clinic, and how bright all our attendings are. Also, having so many resources for patients who otherwise would not receive adequate care, which prepares us to practice both the ideal, evidence-based management and work-up, while also preparing for ‘real life’ medicine and navigating the challenges of nonmedical factors in practice.OneWorld Resident
The sense of community and having a common goal is one of the things I like most about working at OneWorld. I feel like every member of the health care team (health assistants, nurses, behavioral health, etc.) is working toward the goal of bettering the health of the patient.OneWorld Resident
My favorite part of working at OneWorld is being able to help the undeserved community of the Omaha metropolitan area. I truly enjoy helping individuals who are struggling with their medical conditions or who need assistance in general medical care. I really appreciate having support groups such as patient support, behavioral health, diabetes education, social work and clinical pharmacy. I would not have chosen anywhere else to do my medical residency training.OneWorld Resident

In addition to our medical care, OneWorld offers support groups and classes for our patients. We connect our patients to our network of social and community support for patients through partnerships with organizations including but not limited to:

  • The Learning Community Center of South Omaha
  • WIC
  • Immigrant Legal Center (through an Immigrant-Focused Medical/Legal Partnership)
  • Saving Grace Perishable Food Rescue
  • Together Inc.

Who we are looking for?

  • Individuals who have a heart for the underserved and who desire to provide quality health care regardless of socioeconomic status, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation.
  • Individuals who are interested in practicing in a fully functioning Patient-Centered Medical Home model.
  • Individuals who are able to conduct visits in English and Spanish or have a strong desire to learn to do so.
  • The goal of OneWorld’s Family Medicine Residency Program is to recruit and train future physicians from diverse backgrounds who are interested in providing care to the underserved communities of Omaha while providing high-quality, broad-based clinical education and experience.

Why did you choose to do a residency at OneWorld?

My parents do not speak much English, and growing up, I would often have to translate during doctor appointments. I was thus aware of the need for Spanish-speaking providers. Completing my residency at OneWorld allows me to help meet this need.OneWorld Resident
